It was again an alignement problem :-) 

The ARM version of GCC has a bad habit of aligning on a 4 bytes boundary all
structures, even the one only containing fields of size < 4 (this because
some ARM architectures do NOT have a load byte instruction).

So let's fix that in sound.cpp with the attached patch (who, of course,
depends on the previous one).

Ludvig, as you must know the source code better than me ( :-) ), do you know
any other part of the code where you directly map some data to a structure
and that would need packing to be sure to work on all compilers ?

     Lionel (who can't wait for iMUSE to also have music on 
             his GameBoyAdv^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HiPAQ :-) )
